    Can I take my Verizon Z10 over to the T Mobile system? Will it work on the different network?

    Verizon is CDMA and TMo is GSM I believe.
    So unless your phone had dual modes, I am not sure this will work.

    I am on the phone with T Mobile as we speak. Rep claims super uses Verizon Samsung phone. Anyone know. The phone is already unlocked, as I understand it.

    Razz Berry is correct. A Verizon phone is pretty much stuck to Verizon. Even though Sprint is CDMA they won't take phones from Verizon or vice versa. Only GSM networks AT&T and TMO can be switched. (and GSM nets in other countries).

    This may change in the future if Verizon switches to GSM. But for right now you'd need to get a Z10STL100-3 for T-Mobile.

    Some phones may be capable of CDMA and GSM. But no BlackBerry can do that as far as I know.

    All Verizon BlackBerry 10 devices are GSM compatible, but you will not get LTE service on any GSM network. They are primarily compatible for use with GSM carriers outside the US for travel purposes so you're likely better off getting a different Z10 variant, but as a short term device your current one will work.

    You can bring a Verizon Z10 to TMO, but you're only going to get 2G with it, not even 3G.

    Now if this was a Q10 or a Z30 or something else, those are much better.
